I Belonged to the Blank Generation: Blondie, CBGB and NYC in the 1970s

Gary Lachman (then Valentine), a founder of Blondie, talks about and shows images of counter-cultural 1970s New York.

Gary Lachman was the bassist and guitarist with Blondie and wrote their early hits 'X-Offender' and (I'm Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear'. A regular at CBGB and other Mnhatten watering holes he mixed with and bummed cigarettes from Patti Smith, Richard Hell, David Bowie, Lou Reed, the Ramones, Talking Heads, William Burroughs, Iggy Pop and, of course, Debbie Harry. Lachman was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. His book New York Rocker: My Life in the Blank Generation (2002) charts his adventures in the rocked out, poetry laden, art encrusted, and sex and drug filled scene, and portrays a legendary NYC that no longer exists.
